Jim Riley's Dynamite Arena began hosting twice-weekly jackpots in the 1970s when it was one of just two such facilities in the Phoenix area (the other was Elmer's Roping Arena in Laveen). It was where many of today's NFR qualifiers from Arizona cut their teeth as kids. It now stands as the only remaining local arena with that legacy. Remarkably, after nearly five decades, it's still Jackpotters' favorite place to gather each week to reunite and enjoy sunshine and friendly competition.

When Riley passed away in 1992, his nephew, Ron Treat, took over and furthered the arena's reputation with always-efficient production and good cattle. Levi Schofield purchased Dynamite from Treat and continued the legacy for six years.

In 2014 Bryan Beaver together with long-time roping producers, Daren and Kami Peterson took the reins. Under its new ownership, Dynamite got a facelift for the first time in years. That same year, Dynamite Arena held its Season Opener on November 1-2 and hosted a staggering 815 teams that played for a payout of more than $80,000.

As the popularity of team roping continues to rise the legacy lives on!
